Ombersley pupils recycling for charity

Droitwich Editorial 29th Aug, 2014 Updated: 17th Oct, 2016

YOUNGSTERS from Ombersley First School and Nursery raised cash for resources to improve their learning and helped the environment at the same time when they took part in a recycling scheme.

In total, 900 kilos of unwanted clothes, textiles and shoes were collected under the Bags 2 School project, generating £450.

The donated items will support the second-hand clothes trade in developing countries in Eastern and Western Europe, Africa and Asia.

Headteacher Caroline Moore said: “We have a very active eco council at the school, so we are always looking for new ideas to help improve the sustainability of the environment in which we live and work.

“Bags 2 School is an excellent way of raising awareness amongst the children of the benefits of recycling and reuse as well as diverting unwanted items from landfill.”

The collections were organised by the Friends of Ombersley School as part of its annual fund-raising programme.
